COMMENTS

a(n) is also the number of grid points that are covered after nth stage by an polyedge as the toothpick structure of A139250, but with toothpicks of length 4.

FORMULA

Conjecture: a(n) = A147614(n)+2*A139250(n). [From R. J. Mathar, Jan 22 2010]
The above conjecture is true: each toothpick covers exactly two more grid points than the corresponding toothpick in A147614.


EXAMPLE

a(2)=13:
